The research that takes place in David Hanneke’s lab in Merrill Science Center involves a lot of cool stuff: lasers, crystals, electromagnetic traps, the fundamental constants of the universe and Amherst College students. Now Hanneke, an assistant professor of physics, has a five-year, $600,000 CAREER grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support his team’s ongoing investigations into the properties of charged particles.

FRIENDSHIP

Why it’s important to me: This photo represents the truest, most raw pieces of life: Friendship. It was taken in London, and while not everyone knew each other in this photo before it was taken, the friendships and love that have grown since it was snapped are inspired and precious. It is a reminder that in our lives of hustle, bustle, business-making and deep desires to leave legacies, that we exchange ideas, share vulnerabilities and enjoy the company of those we care about and love.

Manners: Do You Mind?

Submitted by Katherine D. Duke

Welcome to Campus Buzz! This is the newest place to read, see and hear what some of us at Amherst are up to. As Green Dean at the Office of Public Affairs, I’m pleased to bring you the inaugural bit of buzz.

My job on Sunday, Jan. 21, was to have dinner. Actually, it was to learn to partake of a meal the proper way by joining more than 60 students and alumni for Amherst’s first Gracious Dining seminar.
